is in recess. we are going to focus on the story from libya. and your calls and reaction as u.s. and allies strike those targets. 202-737-0002, our line for democrats. 202-737-0001 for republicans. for independence, the number to call is 202-628-0205. here are some of the headlines from domestic newspapers beginning with "new york post." "take that gaddafi." "strike one." an air assault, no ground troops, but tomahawk missiles continue to strike those targets. some other headlines beginning with the chicago tribune. u.s. allies are attacking libya. most of it right along the coast. you can see along the mediterranean sea. l.a. times -- attacks on libya. you can see from the u.s. and navy destroyers. operation "odyssey dawn" was the name of the operation. from the "richmond times- dispatch", the u.s. striking libyan forces. and from the "miami herald", libya under fire. you can join the conversation online at twitter.com/cspanwj. caller: good morning. i would like to know what the heck is going on. here we are and another freakin' war. congress is on vacation. who is minding the store? i'm a
's an article iii. what i'm trying to talk about is separate, the next step. and i think petitioners use third party standing is just out the window whether it's separation of powers tenth amendment, anything. >> thank you. you have four minutes. >> thank you. just a few points in rebuttal. first of all, one reason not to carve out special rule for commandeering claims is that not all commentary claims are created equal. mr. dreeben praise thee, to claim that it's been litigated in the context, the sex offender registration act that i don't know if the details are that the commandeering claim are not. but i concern imagine a commandeering case, the federal statutes. the problem is right now the lower courts are not following the standing issue from the challenges based on a careful analysis of article iii standing redress ability or prudential stand for that matter. they are resolving those with these simple and let's move on. a second reason that you should not try to carve a commandeering cases as being somehow the residuum of the tennessee electric victim is because tennessee electric says
commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter ham said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this weekend decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft destroying those libyan regime tanks. and this, whi

, lawrence. thank you for that. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. we will be joined live from libya in a moment by nbc's richard engel, doing amazing reporting from the war zone there. are we allowed to call it a war zone? let's call it a war zone, while interviewing rebels on the frontlines in libya earlier today. richard and his crew found themselves on the wrong side of what i think was an artillery barrage. that is to say they were not far from it and covering from a safe distance, they were in the middle of it. richard and his crew are fine. we will have that amazing footage for you in a moment and richard will join us live. but put yourself in richard engel's shoes for a moment. if you had the job of being nbc's chief foreign correspondent, and say like him you speak arabic, your special area of expertise is the middle east, it's hard to imagine at this point when you get to come home, isn't it? i mean, the uprisings in tunisia that began four months ago, continued to rickochet, swell through north africa and through the mideast, bahrain, yemen, syria, now liby
, that is the private sector sustainable kind of growth. now let us talk about the deficit and the issues of debt facing the economy. as all of you know what matters is what is our debt to gdp level and what matters is as the simpson-bowles commission revealed that is not what is important. conflating long and fiscal challenges with the deficit which is big this year is very dangerous because it leads you to do things that are not correct. we signed a tax deal in december in a bipartisan manner which was important. it gives payroll tax cut to encourage workers and encourage hiring. with incentives for education. all of those are important and everyone knew when they signed it, with 80 senators signing that deal, they knew it would increase the deficit in 2011. they're on the full growth path and a position to confront long run fiscal issues. and therefore we need to cut, in some sense running into this what the medium and long run programs are for the short run driven by the business. the president in the state of union outlined a budget that cuts discretionary spending down to a share of the economy no
is only a threat to us as long as we continue our military occupation in afghanistan. after more than nine years of military occupation in afghanistan, can we really continue to claim to be acting in self-defense? the premise that the presence of our troops on the ground keeps us safer at home has been repudiated by recent terrorist attacks on the united states all done by people other than afghans. outraged at continuing u.s. military occupation of predominantly muslim countries. that's not to justify what they do, but it is to clarify the condition that we have in afghanistan. for how long are we going to continue to dedicate hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of lives before we realize we can't win afghanistan militarily? at the end of the year, the administration and u.s. military leaders were touting peace talks to end the war with high level taliban leaders. these leaders turned out to be fake. a november, 2010 article in "the new york times" detailed joint u.s. an afghan negotiations with a man the u.s. claim was one of the most senior commanders in the taliban. according
do all the other services thathey use to do. they can do it at a much wer price because of the advantages that they have. are really do think -- they hang together. you have these major banks that feel like they can -- they are too big to fail. i think it is up to congress and up to the treasury and not to the other regulators to make sure that the dodd-frank provisions are in there. make sure that we do not have too big to fail. how will they survive when they have these giant comg to town with low interest rates? it is very difficult. unless you go into things like commercial real estate. and now you see what happens. it makes them -- it makes it tough for them to make money. >> thank you, senator. we agree very strongly that we have to have a thriving community bank industry in this country with the obama administration took office, we did not provide any additional funds to the largest banks in the country. we provided funds to about 400 very small banks. i agree with decisions they made. they were necessary to prevent a collapse of our system. but we have tried to w
for images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action. >> president obama said the u.s. was not in imminent danger, our values were at stake. he stopped short of trying to force muammar gaddafi out. >> if we tried to -- will likely have to put u.s. troops on the ground. >> not an option. instead, hillary clinton is in london today, meeting with countries who want to see a new government in libya. pressure gaddafi to step down on his own. >> we tied up his financial assets. we have an embargo. he is getting weaker all the time. >> some say the president should have consulted congress first. nato takes over tomorrow. libya takes center stage in the lot -- in the fight for freedom. what about other countries like yemen that are facing similar uprisings? the president said wherever people want to be free, they will find a friend in the united states. tracie potts, wbal-tv 11 news. that brings us to our water cooler question of the day. do you think the president was effective in conveying his message? you can share your response at wbaltv.com and on our facebook page, or se

're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre
was simply that i did not believe that the president had outlined a vital u.s. american interest in our engagement in libya, that the united states cannot afford to be the police force of the wor world. this week, with the president's address to the nation, i had hoped that i would hear something to change my mind, or, better yet, something that would instill confidence about the president's decision, but unfortunately, this address provided the american people with many more questions than answers. president obama left me wondering why any vital u.s. american interest in libya would justify military action. he said refugees would stream into tunisia and egypt, but we often aid refugees without f-15's. he said we needed to preserve the writ of the united nations security council, but he did not explain why the safety of our men and women in uniform should ever be put at the service of that body. he said that we needed to show dictators across the region that they could not use violence to cling to power. but if president obama's policy fails to get rid of qaddafi, that iqaddafi,that --

"the afghan war is not worth fighting, most in the u.s. say." host: what do you think? is the war in afghanistan worth fighting? do you think it has been productive so far? if you think this time for a pullout? fairfax, virginia. jack joins us. good morning. caller: good morning. i had a comment about the war and one other comment. i do not think it is worth fighting. we're spending $2 billion per week and countless companies are just taking this money. it cannot be accounted for. that is why i think the republicans are all four wards because the money goes overseas and it cannot be accounted for. if it stays in the country under social programs, at least there's some accountability. my other point, you know, these guys like eric cantor and paul ryan and boehner -- they are all under federal employees health benefits. they pay $430 per month. the very

calculation using the c.b.o. baseline, real spending approved for fy 2011 to date is $34 billion lower than was provided in fy 2010. a cut of $18 billion in real security spending and $16 billion in domestic spending. with this amendment, we'll be cutting domestic spending by another $6 billion, and in normal terms but more than in inflation-adjusted dollars. democrats have been chastised for only cutting $10 billion from fy 2010. madam president, i would note that even in that comparison which fails to take into account many factor-of-life increases, we should all understand that domestic spending is being cut by more than $14 billion while security spending is slated to increase. furthermore, madam president, we are now halfway through the fiscal year. agencies have spent an average of 50% of their funds. each dollar we reduce at this time has the effect of doubling the cut made in programs for the rest of the year. our subcommittee chairmen recognize the difficulties that this level of spending will create for the programs. accordingly, many of my colleagues on the appropriations committ
